Defensive income plan offering up to 6% interest, even if the FTSE falls by 35%…
A defensive income plan offers the opportunity to receive interest from your investment, even if the stock market falls, which can make for a compelling option.
The Meteor FTSE Super Defensive Quarterly Income Plan will pay 1.5% income at the end of each quarter, provided the FTSE 100 Index has not fallen more than 35% below its value at the start of the plan – that’s a potential 6% per year interest, even if the FTSE falls 35%. If the Index does close below this level, no income is paid for that quarter.
The plan has a maximum term of 9 years, but also offers the opportunity to receive your initial capital back in full before then, if the FTSE at the end of each year (from year 2 onwards), is higher than its value at the start of the plan. If the plan does not end early, your initial capital is returned in full provided the FTSE has not fallen by more than 35% at the end of the plan term. If it has, your initial investment will be reduced by 1% for each 1% fall, so your capital is at risk.
The super defensive income feature and the conditional capital protection could be attractive to a wide range of investors, whilst the 6% return on offer is a competitive headline interest rate
